<p>I am currently attending a community college, intending to transfer to a UC, preferably Berkeley, in fall of 2011. However, I have some questions arising from the ASSIST page for Berkeley.</p>
<p>COMPSCI 61A - No course articulated.
COMPSCI 61B - No course articulated.
COMPSCI 61C - No course articulated.
COMPSCI 70 - No course articulated.
EL ENG 42 - No course articulated.
MATH 1A - Will be taking in winter; must satisfy prerequisites first.
MATH 1B - Will be taking in spring; must satisfy prerequisites first.
MATH 54 - Will not have time to take.</p>
<p>It seems as though no comparable classes are available for five of the eight courses listed. Furthermore, due to the sequential aspect of math, I will not be able to take the equivalent of MATH 54, which is actually two separate classes here and would require two semesters unless taken simultaneously.</p>
<p>However, I think I'm doing fairly well with the following bit:
To be competitive for admission purposes, the department advises prospective
transfer students to take UC-transferable courses in:
1) data structures--even if not officially comparable to Berkeley's CS 61B; and
2) Java (preferred) or C++.
1) I plan on taking a data structures class in the spring before transferring.
2) I will be taking Java in the fall before, having passed all CS prerequisites with A's up to this point: Intro to Computer and Information Systems, Intro to Programming Using Java, Intro to Algorithms.</p>
<p>As for general education requirements, I will easily have IGETC complete by then, as I am mostly done with those, focusing mostly on computer and math courses right now.</p>
<p>Now, on to my actual question... Despite doing everything possible right now, I feel like I'm not exactly adequately prepared for the major, as I'll be missing six of the eight requirements, and will be taking the other two in the winter and spring prior to transferring. Can somebody tell me if I should genuinely be worried about this, or am I simply overanalysing things?</p>
<p>Sorry for being so verbose. Any answers or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!</p>
